Shots, as they say, have been motherfucking fired. Belgium Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo (great name for a leader of a country), who sports a quaffed comb over in his Twitter avatar that would set your mom’s panties on fire, has proposed a bet to United States President Barry Obama based on the outcome of Tuesday’s soccer match between the U.S. and Belgium.

Here’s the proposed bet, via Twitter:

That “:-)” may seem like friendly banter to the casual observer, but make no mistake about it. That was a calculated move–the move of a smug, confident, asshole leader of a country who thinks he’s got this bet in the bag.

This wouldn’t be the first time Barry accepts such a wager, if he were to do so. He paid his beer debt to Canada after the U.S. hockey team was defeated by our cover band during the Sochi Olympics this year.

Say what you want about the POTUS, but sideshows like this make him fairly likable. I think he accepts.

        I haven’t posted a comment in about a year, but Jesus- Stella Artois. Do you want some humus with your anti-American, feminine beer?

        ^That was to one of those fake accounts posting about making cash online, not to Goose’s comment. Must’ve been deleted

      I support the President of the United States, no matter who it is. You have a problem with that?

    If you can’t back Obama enjoying a beer how about honest Abe:

    “I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts, and beer.” ~Abraham Lincoln

    Anybody who supports that greasy euro trash bastard over our President is un-American, and needs a swift kick to the nads.

    I hate how the World Cup makes undeveloped countries feel like they matter.
